What do new homeowners need to know about their air conditioner?

As a first-time homebuyer, you’re beginning to get settled in your new house. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from purchasing furniture to tackling the landscape.

Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from learning how the components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If you’re moving in during the hot, summer months, you’ll want to pay special attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you keep comfortable in your new home throughout the warmer temps.

So, what should you know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you are aware of the make and model of your system. This should be labeled on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to reach out to a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general questions.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to maintaining indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can earn efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to alter the temperature even when you are gone.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Ongoing maintenance is vital to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. House of Heating Incorporated in Marshfield can give you the service that you need, and discuss some tips on efficiency and how to increase indoor air quality and home comfort.
  4. Don’t Forget Your Filter—Outside of ongoing maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner working efficiently is to replace the air filter. Air filters are typically located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
